the congress in the dark. the congress have been given inaccurate statements. another line of defense is they scoop up tons but it's okay because they have a lot of rules about it. second there are questions about whether there have ever been any violation.
in his own defense. his attorneys have stayed tight-lipped so far but there is speculation that bulger will want to testify. he's facing a slew of charges, including 19 counts of murder. if he's found guilty of even some at age 83, he'll likely spend the rest of his life in prison. robert fitzpatrick wrote a book about trying to stop bulger. this case has been full of fireworks. deborah feyerick has been live. bring us up to date on this case. >> his lawyers have asked that the jury be sequestered during deliberations. prosecutors are against it and the judge is going to have to decide that. it's still not clear whether bulger is going to testify. they are going to testify over the period of two witnesses. key among them, a mother whose daughter was killed by bulger and her ex-boyfriend. she's going to be called to testify that her daughter was being sexually molested by the man and therefore he had a greater motive to kill her. also on this list of witnesses is a crime associate who is likely to take the fifth. the reason is that he was actually implicated in one of the murders. now,
, the government, says yes. the defense says look at things like that video. it's all about embarrassing the government. manning was disillusioned with the war, he was troubled by what he saw like the matter in that video, and he wanted the public to know what was going on. that's the defense's case. the prosecution sees it very differently. >> is manning really looking at 136 years in prison, or in the end, could it really be a much shorter time? >> reporter: well, that would be the maximum. you know, there is an interesting wrinkle in that question, because the judge has already said she will knock off about 112 days off any sentence he gets because of the time he served at a military prison here in the washington area in which he was held in solitary confinement, stripped naked. the government again said that was because he was a suicide risk. the judge found suicide risk or not, that was not the correct or appropriate condition for him to be held in, so she's already going to take time off for that. i think the issue is the government will go for the maximum, and the defense will hav
experience, and largely saw the confrontation through his eyes and the way the defense portrayed it. but she couldn't identify with trayvon martin's female friend who what haitian-american. so that term creepy-ass cracka that rachel jeantel said trayvon used, you're saying that's simply how they talked to each other? >> sure. that's the way they talk. >> and did you see that as a negative statement or a racial statement as the defense suggested? >> i don't think it's really racial. i think it's just everyday life, the type of life that they live and how they're living and the environment that they're living in. >> so you didn't find her credible as a witness? >> no. >> so juror b-37 was part of a six-member panel. all female, one african-american. one of our guests said the trial was over when the jury was seated. do you think that's a fair statement? and more broadly, is racial bias built into the system? let's talk about it with sunny hostin, jeffrey toobin, jose baez, julie blackman is a jury consultant in the martha stewart case. robert horshorn, jury consultant and defense attorney mark
, let me get to you react to what mark o'mara, the defense attorney for george zimmerman posted a little while ago, while juror b-29 is a model juror. "people may disagree with self-defense laws but a juror's job is not to decide what a law should be, her job is to apply the facts presented at trial to the laws they are instructed about. this is the eence of what we seek in a juror, the at to use one as common sense, apply the law to the facts, agree not to be swayed by sympathy or emotion, no matter how loudly it's argued by the prosecutors and decide a lawful and fair verdict." do you agree that juror b-29 was a, quote, model juror? >> well, i don't know if she was a model juror or not. i certainly think that she approached the process in good faith. i don't think there's any reason to doubt that she did that. but i think jeffrey makes a good point. what is really clear when we hear this juror speak is that she really misunderstood the law. she did not appropriately apply the law to the facts because she didn't understand it. and the reason why she didn't understand it could be because

me now, criminal defense attorney page pate and columnist for "chicago defender" welcome back. jason, let's start with the emotion of this case. what that juror just said that she carries this on her back and she will carry this in her forever. >> this is huge and interesting that she is the only juror that wants to come forward and be seen because there is a classic example. a difference between the law and justice. she reflects with a lot of people out there protesting over the last two and a half weeks we're talking about. everybody knows this guy did something wrong, but whether we can fit that into the law, that's the challenge. >> page, like juror b37 she seemed to be confused by the law. maddie said, "that's where i felt confused. if a person kills someone, you get charged for it. as the law was read to me, if you have no proof he killed him intentionally, you can't say he's guilty. did she get that right? >> she did get that right but she started out as a guilty, a guilty on the more serious murder charge. what happened back in the jury room is you had other jurors who had li
, and he acts in self-defense, that's incredible bad luck he found himself in that situation twice. but we'll sleep soundly. >> you would sleep soundly if you did it again? >> if he's acting legally in self-defense again, absolutely. >> and at what point does he have to take responsibility for pursuing, some would sigh stalking unarmed teenagers who are walking home? >> again, two different levels of government review have found no fault with mr. zimmerman's actions. >> i'm asking you if you do. if you think at any point he has any responsibility for his own actions? in other words, if you're going to arm this guy again, give him a gun that he's recently used to shoot an unarmed teenager. if you're going to arm him again, and that's what you've actively done. you've raised $12,000 to arm him with guns, ammunitions, security and so on, that's fine. what if he does it again? >> well, i mean, we can go through all the hypotheticals you'd like to go through, what it comes down to is that he's gone through a government review again in the second hypothetical situation that you're raising, then
a travesty. >> mid win, if you are the defense, what do you do to separate this son from this father? >> what i would do is focus on the son and build him up as a person, and get the jury to understand what kind of person this man is. he's a young person, and i think jury oftentimes feel several thinkic for a defendant who is really, really young. i found that tape to be shocking, saying he doesn't understand why people are so persistent that this is a murder. i think it's the best way to try this case. >> it was chilling to hear the father talk about that like that. joshua young is 17 years old right now. he was 15 when the murder was committed. his appearance, he does seem so incredibly young. that is what the jury will be looking at. a very young man, but how much of the father will they see in the trial? how much of that other image, heather, is likely to get into their heads? >> that's what the prosecution is going to have to do. plaintiffs a suppression hearing to keep out of the some of the statements of josh young. it would be interesting if he admitted to some participation, it will
: we are just hours away from a sentencing hearing, on wednesday morning, where defense and prosecutors will argue of over what is an appropriate sentence. the judge could decide to let the charges run concurrently or string them out, and come up with a number of years that manning will serve. erin? >> that number of years so important. thank you very much, chris. >>> republican congressman peter king, a member of the house homeland security committee and the house intelligence committee. good to see you, sir, as always. >> thank you. >> are you happy, dispointed? what word would you use? >> i'm gratified that he was convicted on five counts of espionage, plus the other theft counts. this is a serious, serious crime. and five counts, that should have a very, very significant prison sentence and hopefully it will be deterrent to other people such as bradley manning or edward snowden, that type of individual that blooechls they can disclose national secrets. >> so, the essentisentencinsent this court-martial is going to start tomorrow. he could get up to 136 years. what is the appropriate

is. that's what the defense did. that's why what the defense did was so masterful. that's why this prosecution, frankly, was abismil. >> mark was half right, better than his average. the prosecution did make a mistake -- >> just remember, jeff, you were 100% wrong all the way during this trial. so i'll give you -- >> that's not true, anyway. >> that's true, you were better than sunny was. >> thanks, thank, mark. >> the prosecution did make a big mistake in closing about not addressing the jury instructions in a more direct way, however, the fact is the evidence matters, and there was not a lot of evidence here where the prosecution could point to saying that george zimmerman committed this crime. >> i want to bring ben crump into this conversation, and benjamin, you spoke about how frustrating it's been to hear from two jurors now, who have both said basically they were confused by the jury instructions. let me play a little bit more from the juror on that. listen to this. >> i was the juror that was going to give them the hung jury. i was. i fought until the end. >> do you ha

that's been problematic from the case is the defense defines george zimmerman in a way that was helpful to his defense, but i don't think they feel as though their son has been well defined and sort of who he was. >> reporter: the back and forth over the martin case went to new heights after president obama himself weighed in with a deeply personal speech. >> when trayvon martin was first shot, i said that this could have been my son. another way of saying that is trayvon martin could have been me 35 years ago. >> all eyes are on the attorney general eric holder. the obama constituency wants to know whether they'll take any further steps in the case. >> by allowing and perhaps encouraging violent situations to escalate in public, such laws undermine public safety. the list of results tragedies is long and unfortunately has victimized too many who are innocent. it is our collective obligation. we must stand our ground. >> the martin family has started a foundation to honor trayvon's memory and to push for changes. >> we're here today to see what we can do to stop this from happening to y

or what the defense said. as far as whether private manning is traitor, that should not be band aided back. it has a unique stigma to it. unless someone is going to prosecute him for treason he shouldn't be labeled a traitor. i think the claim he's a whistle blower is off based. he may have had what he considers good intentions but at the end of the day it's not especially to every citizen to decide whether to share the count country's crown jewels with others. >> that raises the question. barbara, i don't know you've done a lot of reporting. 750,000 pages were handed over to wikileakss and a lot of that posted on the internet. a lot of it was classifieied secret. it waunt higher classification. based on everything you've heard, how much real damage to u.s. national security was done as a result of this? >> this has been the debate all along and continues to be the debate in the snowden case. how much damage? people will tell you that bradley manning leaked a lot of information but it was information intelligence at a point in time. something that happened in iraq. something that happened

to inexpect your glove compartment. >> zimmerman hasn't been in contact with his defense team. david mattingly covered the trial. what was george zimmerman doing in texas? >> we talked to people closest to him and they are not saying at all. they are pointing out security reasons for that. we got a statement from his family a short time ago and it reads our family received death threats on a daily basis. we continue to take our security and privacy very seriously and go to great lengths to ensure our safety and that includes not talking to people about where george zimmerman is. we also received a tweet from his defense team talking about this saying we won't make comments about zimmerman's whereabouts. zimmerman himself was somewhat vague today in talking to the police officer. you can hear some of that exchange on the police video. the officer asked him where he was headed to and zimmerman would not give him a firm answer. security clearly on everyone's mind here for george zimmerman's whereabouts. >> a lot of people obviously as you say might be shocked to know george zimmerman is traveling
for the george zimmerman defense team. great to see both of you on the show. and natalie, let me start with you. she said she owes the martin family an apology. i want to get your response to what she said. >> it is hard for me to sleep. hard for me to eat. i feel that i was forcefully included in trayvon martin's death. and i carry him on my back, i'm hurting as much as trayvon martin's mom is. there's no way that any mother should feel that pain. >> what's your reaction? >> well, my reaction is that i feel for her. i do. and i know that she issued an apology to sybrina fulton and i think that's between her and sybrina to talk about, really. i have not spoken to sybrina about that. but you know, it's her decision and she has to live with that. >> barbara, let me tell you what we know that this juror. i want to emphasize, she did choose to show her face but she is going by mady, not giving her full name. she is worried about possible retribution. we know she is 36 years old. she describes herself as puerto rican. she has only been in florida five months. lived previously in chicago. she has eig

at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should look at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollar and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents for every dollar. maybe senator paul could deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> are you going to take his advice, senator? >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. you know, we have two military bases in kentucky and is governor christie recommending we shut down our military bases? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do, shut down military bases in kentucky? in order to have enough money for national defense, you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. and governor christie and others have been part of this gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all this money. we could have done the relief for sandy in a responsible way. i propose we do
a case that they are going to go forward with and it is going to be very difficult for the defense to counter that. of course, the way the defense always corrects that is to say hey, listen, you got a deal. you are really the bad guy. you made a deal in order to exculpate yourself from some kind of criminal responsibility, criminal liability. this case is very early now. this is moving very quickly. there is going to be a lot of procedural process that happens. this grand jury indictment probably is going to move the case right to trial. but i wouldn't expect to see a trial in this case for many months to come. >> ortiz is particularly interesting in this case because he is the co-defendant that's come forward and said that another co-defendant involved actually told him hernandez is the individual that actually shot the gun and killed odin llyod. his testimony will be particularly crucial in this case. you could see him coming forward and testifying in the hearing. hearsay is allowed. >> we will have to wait ask see what happens. thank you. we will discuss other legal cases later
